When is too early to plant? When is too late? Jim reports on his plant-seeking trip to China. And taking advantage of free wood chips.

Host Glen Andresen welcomes back world-traveler Jim Gilbert, who will report on his recent trip to China searching for tasty and appropriate plants to grow here. Also, when is too early to plant? When is it time to plant? When is is appropriate to stake a tree?

As always, we'll answer your gardening questions, have a new Plant of the Month (onion seeds, sets, and seedlings: what's the difference?), define our Dirtbag Dictionary word ("robbing nitrogen"), quiz you with a new Garden Stumper, and, maybe, just maybe, as part of our occasional segment, what's annoying Glen this month!

The Dirtbag... Listen. Laugh. Learn.
